of perspective. you've seen speakers calling for 600 billion in healthcare savings over the next ten years. the president said a lower number f. -- lower number. if we take the president's reported to be his most recent number of 400 billion in savings in healthcare over the next ten years. what are we going to be spend on healthcare over the next ten years? over $11 trillion. so at the president's number the spending would represent 3.6% of what we're projected to spend in healthcare over the next decade. we can't save 3.6%? really? you know we're in a situation where 5% of medicare beneficiaries use half of the money. 5% of the beneficiaries use half of the money. certainly we can save 3.6% by doing a better job of coordinating the care of people who are using most of the resources. we've done enough studies i think to conclude we could deliver better healthcare and save money by better coordinating the care of those who are using most of the money. you look at the overall circumstance in this country in terms of what we're spending on healthcare. for 2010, which is the most recent year

'rourke made a great observation 20 years ago when said if you think healthcare is expensive now wait until it is free. what we are seeing is the free healthcare that was promised and it is anything but free. >> well, and, of course, there are going to be volumes and volumes of regulations coming from the healthcare law and we are already starting to see some of those and a lot of red flags for people. when the hhs regulation came out on the issue of contraception that has sparked dozens of legal battles across the country. another regulation that recently has been rolled out raising a lot of eyebrows as well. the $63 a head charge meant to cover preexisting condition costs but that $63 a head as i underand it it is going to be levied on everyone, healthy, well, or with a preexisting condition. >> this is a natural reaction to things like just the passing a magic wand and saying that preexisting conditions are going to be covered. how? somebody has to pay for these things. now, we are learning, everyone is paying for these things. this free healthcare was never free. it is expensive and alr

,000 and $7,000 at the end of the year after being bailed out buss they have no increase in their healthcare cost coverages and their per hourly rated which is approximately $58 per hour is going to stay in tact. this in my opinion is a big sweetheart deal directed by the united states government. >> so the bonus are not performance based or based on seniority. how are they determining these bonuses. >> these are sign on bonuses. i don't understand the issue of sign-on bonus when you join a company. you join the company and the network away from another company. these are existing workers getting end of year bonuses that are not based on incentives. we just bailed out this company general motors not too long ago. to hand out bonuses it's very peculiar to me. again the government does own 26% of general motors. i think it's a government directed bonus pool that is a lot of pay back for the unions who voted in administration in this office. >> heather: so on wednesday, gm did receive a christmas boost because u.s. treasury it would reduce its stake in gm by selling a chunk of sales back to the
